Yarra Valley Speedway Kart Club (YVSKC) prides itself on being a fun and family oriented club which encourages all drivers regardless of age and ability.
Speedway Karting is the world’s most affordable form of motor sport. Many people associate it with young drivers, but adults are also very active in speedway karting. Karting is considered the first step in any serious racer’s career. It can prepare the driver for high-speed wheel-to-wheel racing by developing quick reflexes, precision, car control, set-up, mechanical and decision-making skills. People of all ages can enjoy the sport with children as young as eight competing behind the wheel.
Karting teaches these children, both boys and girls, basic driving skills well before they are able to obtain their road license. Karting is competitive, but it is also fun and family orientated, with involvement in the sport both on and off the track giving it a strong feeling of community. It teaches driving skills and offers people an opportunity to gain a career in motor sport, all in a safe and organized environment.
Getting into karting is relatively simple. First you need to become a member of the Yarra Valley Speedway Kart Club.
